Suzuki Access 125 recorded the most searches online when compared to Honda Activa 125 and the newcomer Hero Destini 125.
Suzuki Access 125 made its debut back in 2007. It was one of the earliest 125cc scooters in time. Its peppy engine and a unique exhaust note made it popular in the Indian market.
Throughout the years, it received many updates. However, the earlier plain-old design has now been replaced with a classy finish. Now, it also gets many premium features, making it up to date.
So let us explain you how Access 125 is the most searched 125cc family scooter. With the help of Google Trends, for a period of last 12 months, we put Honda Activa Vs 125 Vs Hero Destini 125 Vs Suzuki Access 125. Following which, Access got the highest searches, followed by Activa.
One of the primary reason for its popularity is because Access is lighter than Activa and somewhat looks better than it. It has a shorter wheelbase than Activa, which makes it look somewhat fun-scooter.
We have tried Suzuki Burgman Street, which borrows its engine from Access. Based on that, we say that Access also gets a peppy engine. The engine made Burgman quick on its toes.
Another significant reason for the popularity is because of its affordable pricing. Suzuki Access 125 is priced at Rs 60,925. On the other hand, Activa 125 goes for Rs 64,000 (prices ex-showroom).
Now taking Hero Destini 125, it misses out on the most important aspect. Destini comes with out the option of a disc brake. Also, it looks very plain and conservatively styled. However, it is a much cheaper option than Access.
Access 125 comes with a 124.6cc engine that produces 8.7 BHP and 10.2 Nm of peak torque. Estimated mileage on Access is around 50 kmpl.
Features onboard Access include a digi-analogue instrument cluster, one-push central lock system, Disc Brake, Charging Slot as standard fitment, alloy wheels and front storage pocket.
It misses out on some desired features such as a boot lamp, LED headlamps and probably a fully digital instrument cluster.
